Legal proceedings involving children and youth frequently involve dealing with scientific evidence (whether biology, chemistry, psychiatry or psychology) and the scientists who present it. But as we have learned from both the Charles Smith and Motherisk Inquiries, not all scientific evidence is created equal. Join us to explore the key lessons learned from these inquiries, and gather helpful ideas on how practitioners can avoid the potential pitfalls that can result from reliance on scientific evidence.
